Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership
University of Washington students serve and lead, in on-and off-campus communities, to expand their boundaries, to learn from others, and to make a tangible difference in the world. We invite ALL UW students, undergraduate and graduate and from all three campuses, to share how they have worked together to transform their campus and communities, to develop compassionate leadership skills, and to learn from each other.
Students can apply to showcase the ways they are involved in service and leadership in the annual Spring Celebration Gallery of Student Projects which will be held on Wednesday, May 24th, from 2:00-6:30 p.m. in the Husky Union Building (HUB). As part of the Gallery, students present their engagement through a poster display and discuss their service and leadership experiences with other students, faculty, community partners, civic and University leaders. Please note that students are encouraged to attend the entire event, but the time commitment for gallery participants will be approximately one hour and 15 minutes. All students will have the opportunity to check in and set up between 12:30 pm-1:45 pm the day of the event.
Participation in the Spring Celebration of Service and Leadership enables you to:
– Connect with other students doing interesting and meaningful work on campus and in the community
– Share your valuable service and leadership work with a diverse audience
– Hear feedback regarding your project and presentation
– Build your presentation skills and experience
– Expand your resume to include a new public presentation experience!
Tara Ghassemikia, Spring Celebration 2015 participant, shared that she learned how other students were creating impact in their communities and found it to be “humbling and inspiring to present alongside them….This event gave me the opportunity to create and tell my story, and also receive valuable feedback about my project from my friends and strangers alike.”
Applications will be reviewed as they are received and projects are accepted on a space available basis. All applications to participate are due by April 24th, 2017.
